Noted: Thanks g1smd, I'm busy consolidating directives to Rewrites in place of Redirects, as Jim wrote:
Because of the per-module execution order and the need to avoid exposing internal filepaths as URLs, many of the contributors here recommend *not* mixing mod_alias directives such as "Redirect" and "RedirectMatch" with mod_rewrite directives such as "RewriteRule." Unless you are on Apache 1.x and can control the LoadModule order, there is no way to guarantee that mod_alias directives will be processed first, and that no mod_rewrite redirect will be undesirably preempted by a Redirect or RedirectMatch redirect. Even if it works today, there is no guarantee that a config change or a server upgrade won't break the code tomorrow by changing the module execution order.
Jim: Thanks for your comments on my virtual host. But I plead leniency for them, it may have been my summary that unintentionally gave the impression they are below par. They have a very good reputation, and I've been there many years and will remain until a better virtual host appears.
As soon as YOU set up a virtual hosting business, I'll switch.
So now you have four pot-boilers: Day job, pillar of WebmasterWorld, book author, and hosting service.
